Did a Milwaukee, Wisconsin man named Martin Sanders lose 200 pounds by drinking menstrual blood? No, that's not true: the story about the bizarre and disgusting weight loss method was invented by a Canadian website that creates stories about weird crimes, bizarre sex acts and other strange events but purely for entertainment purposes. The entire thing was made up, it is not real.

38-year old Martin Sanders from Milwaukee in Wisconsin, weighted over 400-lbs a few months ago when he decided to try a new diet of his own design.

Users on social media only saw this title, description and thumbnail so some people might have thought it was a real news article:

The picture that illustrated the story was real though, but it showed Zach Moore, a man from Florida who lost 295 pounds after gastric bypass surgery and drastic changes to his diet and habits (and not by drinking menstrual blood, to be clear):

The website World News Daily Report is a well known satire website specialized in posting hoaxes and made up stories. The disclaimer on their website is pretty clear about that even though you have to scroll all the way down the page to find it:
World News Daily Report assumes all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website - even those based on real people - are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any person, living, dead or undead, is purely a miracle.
It is run by Janick Murray-Hall and Olivier Legault, who also run the satirical Journal de Mourréal, a satirical site spoofing the (real) Journal de Montéal. Very often their stories feature an image showing a random crazy mugshot found in a mugshot gallery on the internet or on a stock photo website superimposed over a background of flashing police lights or crime scene tape.
Articles from the site are frequently copied (sometimes even months or years later) by varous fake news websites that omit the satire disclaimer and present the information as real.
